Today's Opinions

  • Right to work may mean working for less

    A few counties have pinned their hopes for job growth and made a political point of passing local “right to work” laws, but the Kentucky Center for Economic Policy researchers say such laws could make the labor and wages situation worse instead of better.

    With half the states in the union having adopted these laws, any impact of new local and state governments introducing their own ordinances or statutes would be too diluted to matter, according to information from KCEP’s Anna Baumann.

  • Closing the food gap in Kentucky

    In recognition of National Volunteer Month, the Kentucky Association of Food Banks would like to honor the thousands of people in Kentucky who dedicate themselves to taking action against hunger. 

    The 800 local charitable feeding organizations in our network rely on a volunteer workforce to ensure that they can serve their clients. Each week 19,900 volunteers provide aid to food programs in the Commonwealth. The volunteers contribute a total of 81,200 hours per week.  

  • In support of Grossberg

    On May 19, I will proudly cast my vote for Daniel Grossberg for State Treasurer and so should you.   

    Daniel is a realtor who lives in Jefferson County with his wife Erica.  He is the youngest candidate in this race, which is his most redeeming quality as he brings a set of new ideas and a fresh perspective for this office.  

  • It's time to legalize industrial hemp
  • In recognition of local 911 dispatchers

    National Public Safety Telecommunications Week, April 12-18, was established by the United States Congress in 1991 to recognize the dedicated professionals who link the public to emergency services.  

     The Kentucky State Police-Post 5 is taking this opportunity to create public awareness of the important services delivered 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year by our emergency communications personnel. 

  • Consider adoption for your next furry friend

    For as long as I can remember, we’ve had a dog in our home. 

    Hobo, a small, fluffy mixed breed dog, is the first dog I can remember in my life. We lived in Campbellsburg across the old wooden bridge, and Hobo would walk to town with us to the store for a soda during the summer.
